    EDIT -

    The original site is now dead, it seems, but I found another superb resource on pre-Roman sites. IT's very comprehensive, and although the focus is on Megalithic sites across the UK, some other ancient sites are covered.

    The interactive map takes a while to load - and maybe to get used to - but it erally is a great feature:

    I'm actually tempted to start taking the family out this summer, and go around a few of these sites - many of which I'd not even heard of. It could be a good idea to to take photos, and maybe write up something about them for the Chronicles site. Hm...

    I'm collecting together some very decent ones on Roman Britain. :)

    Went to Cawthorn Roman forts the other day. Great day out. Hence why I'm collecting some Rome resources. :)

    Just to say I've edited the original post - check out the link for a great guide to Megalithic UK sites. :)
